Hey fellas, I've had this problem a couple times before, but today it happened two or three times. Wen taking off in 1st gear the bike would sputter as I release the clutch and give some throttle. After I work through the sputtering and get the bike going it's fine. It's an '08 with about 9k miles. I haven't checked anything on it yet. But, I searched on her a little then decided to start my own thread. Thanks for any information that you can provide.
